I want to upgrade my freelancer "free basic plan" to "plus plan".

But I've two little question here.


Question 1:
If I upgrade my account then I'll get 70 Connects/month.  If I'll not use my connects, then next month can I'll get my "not use connects" to my account?


What will happen, If I'll not paid next month for "plus plan" or, My account will not significant balance.


I'm totally new.  So, I try to bid under 100$ projects right now..
This "Plus Plan" will be costly If I'll not get any project of a month.

Your extra connects will be rolled over in the next billing cycle. I am not sure about upworks new policy if you degrade to basic plan.

Hi Md, 


I'll be happy to answer your questions. Your unused connects will be rolled over to the next billing cycle. You may read more about the perks of the Plus Plan here.


If the system is unable to charge your Upwork balance, it will try to charge the billing method you have on file. If this fails, you will be automatically downgraded to a Freelancer Basic Plan. Here's a help article for more information about membership billing.
